BS Contact for mobile phones with augmented reality

By porting the C++ kernels, Bitmanagement enables its 3D viewer BS Contact for interactive and real time applications to support smart phones and Apple i-phones. The support of the new 3D and augmented reality for Nokia’s mobile phone N900 in the interAR project is judged as an important milestone. In this connection the camera pictures are already superimposed by X3D standard compliant graphics. Further smart phones will follow, because the source code is prepared for mobile platforms with OpenGL ES (Open Library Embedded System).

First of all, Bitmanagement supports the mobile phone producer Nokia from Finland in its introduction of OpenGL ES real time rendering for its smart-phones and pushes the trend to replace the traditional game pads. The technical demo shows interactive 3D graphics combined with life video streams as augmented reality (AR) proof of concept.

Geospatial applications are also possible with this solution. The video below shows the city center of Grenoble in 3D. You can walk interactively by touching the device in the centerpoint and moving the fingertip to the walkdirection. Besides the high performance of the navigation the video also shows an animation of a bus crossing the market place.
